Sony's e-Paper prototype has been exhibited on a technical presentation, and the product is larger than previous e-Paper prototypes. The screen is even extremely flexible and can bend without taking damage, since it has been created on a plastic substrate. At the moment it’s black/white but there are color e-Paper panels in production as well.
